Hi! I've been playing RFC for a while and it's the best mod for Civ hands-down. One thing that many have noticed is that few AI empires ever reach their historical extent; Rome and Mongolia for example tend to stay quite close to home. This is normal given the need for balance and the limited time available, so I don't expect to see lots of expansion in the regular game. But I made a small tweak to my RFC that gives certain AI Civs a second, expanded spawn zone that is triggered during Autoplay. For example, if you start as Ethiopia or 3000BC Arabia you will see a Roman-controlled Egypt; if you play as Turkey you will spawn in Mongolian-occupied Anatolia. I find it gives a slightly different flavor to the game, with a regional superpower instead of a group of roughly-equal nations. This only affects Autoplay before your game starts, so you don't have to learn any new spawn zones or worry about having your own cities taken this way. If you want to give it a try I've attached the relevant files, for BTS RFC v1.186. Just back up your Rhye's install and use WinRar to extract the Rar file in the main Rhye's folder; it contains the Assets folder to match the existing one. Say Yes to file replacement (of course, you made a backup first). Edit the file "Rhye's and Fall of Civilization.ini" in the main Rhye's folder and set NoCustomScenario = 0. Then, on the main loading screen, choose Custom Scenario and you can check the new option called "Autoplay Expansion". Autoplay expansion is optional and does not affect normal RFC if the option is not selected. And to clarify: the expansion is not for the human player but for everyone that comes before. If you want your huge empire you still have to fight for it... you just might fight different neighbours than usual. Also, "expanded spawn zone" is a bit of a misnomer since the expansion can occur some time after the initial spawn. In a previous version I gave the AI their full empires at the start but then Rome got so powerful they would always found Christianity before Ethiopia even spawned. Here's a list of expansion sequences: - Persia expands before the Carthage spawn; - Carthage expands before the Roman spawn; - Rome expands before the Ethiopian spawn; - Arabia expands before the Khmer spawn (or, just after the 600AD start); - Khmer expands before the Spanish spawn; - Mongolia expands before Turkish spawn; - Turkey, China and Russia expand before the American spawn. Cheers!
